presentation shall be made for the overall performance of Poomsae
1. 2.0 points for speed and power
2. 2.0 points for control of power, speed and rhythm

(Explanation #4): Speed and power (score 2.0):
Ability to perform Poomsae shall be evaluated on whether the movements are performed in accordance with the characteristics of the
pertinent movement, for example, whether attacking techniques like Jireugi, Chagi, etc. are best performed, whether the movement is
presented with a soft start and with a perfect balance between speed and power utilizing the body weight at the maximum, and whether a
special movement is performed slowly intentionally, etc.
(Example 1) Deduction of point shall be made if too much strength is revealed in the beginning of the movements as it slows down the
movements at the most important point of the movements.
(Example 2) Deduction of point shall be made if one exaggerates a movement to propel the next movement or utilizes the reaction of the
body to express power.

(Explanation #5) Control of power, speed and rhythm (score 2.0)
– Control of power means the strongest power shown at the most critical moment of the movement through speed and softness.
– Control of speed means an appropriate connection between actions and changes of speed
– Rhythm means repeated actions according to set rules and length of note, and flow of power.
(Example #1) Too much power makes the movement look stiff from the start. Points shall be deducted if the speed, power and rhythm are
presented with no changes from the start to the end of the lines of movements.
(Example #2) Points shall be deducted in case of stiff actions coming from stiff body: A strong start makes it difficult to accelerate, thus
slowing down the action at the critical point of movements

(Explanation #6)
